    Bubbles For 27 Game Reg Season & Big Dance? Nov25 is Start Date(Not Nov10) w/ Season Completed by Early April. Beginning Sep21: 12 hrs/Wk Practice

    Given the latest guidelines where a team can play 24 regular-season games and up to three games in one multi-team event, it would seem as though the BTT would have to be drastically trimmed and reformatted with several teams left out or abolished altogether for a different multi-team event. If...

    2021 Prospects: Payton Sandfort (Decides October 1st; looks like its IOWA), Trey James (commits to IONA!!) & others

    Yet, even the Clowns didn't offer him. Maybe he made it clear he wanted to leave the state.

    Thanks for gathering all this information and posting it here, Fran. Much appreciated!

    11 of 11 nonconf games are set. Looks like N Carolina or L'ville at CHA & Iowa at Nova or Creighton

    I'm a little disappointed they didn't settle on a true B1G round robin of 26 games. Back in the day, before the expansion, that was the norm and produced a true conference champion. Toss in the Gavitt Game, the ACC/B1G Challenge and the Clone game and you have a great schedule.

    OK, I'll play the devil's advocate....At this stage of McCaffery's tenure, should we really be pursuing recruits with no other P5 offers? I know he has a knack for sniffing out diamonds in the rough, but I doubt many of our conference competitors are stocking their rosters with projects.

    MLB is planning to bubble (is that a verb?) at the new Texas Stadium in Arlington for the WS

    IOWA #3 in the Country per Jon Rothstein (CBS Sports) and #5 per ESPN & Favorite to win The B1G Championship

    It may not be as long as I think, but I'm wondering when the last time the B1G Preseason First Team didn't have a Spartan on it.

    ***Luka Garza commits to Iowa***

    This is exactly how the chumps on CyFan projected him as well.

    2020 Iowa/2013 Indiana

    I'm not sure other teams in the B1G view Iowa as a Murderer's Row of talent, outside of Luka.

    So, if we skip the Iowa St. game this year, does it resume next season with another road game for us?

    Consecutive free throw streaks heading into the 2020-21 season

    I just hope the record isn't on the line in a game with the scored tied (or the Hawks behind by one) with 1 second left

    Luka Garza named preseason player of the year

    If Iowa had played the A-10 schedule last year, Luka's stats would likely have gone down. He would have spent a lot of time on the bench while our deep reserves played a ton of mop up minutes at the end of games.

    Luka Garza named preseason player of the year

    When two AP voters leave Luka off the First Team All-American Team, it is evident that politics have entered the arena.

    Jamie Pollard....I call BS!

    Personally, given the inept job Kimmy did regarding the virus, and the fudging and obfuscation of the numbers she released, I would look askance at any "facts" released by her administration.

    Lute Olson placed in Hospice Care

    Bobbie and the weather was certainly the number one factor, but Lute was really getting fed up with some of the fans and media. Even with the overall adoration he received from the casual fans, I think he felt unappreciated by a certain segment of fans and media that thought we should be going...

    2020 Iowa/2013 Indiana

    I assume by your emoji you are being sarcastic, but it takes a pretty cold soul to begrudge the Cubs a WS every 100 years or so, but those people are out there.
